Portland is one of many cities adopting the designation of sanctuary city, leading to both controversy and questions. What led Portland’s City Council to make the declaration? What does the history of the sanctuary movement tell us about contemporary initiatives? How does being a sanctuary city affect immigrant rights? How does it affect law enforcement?
This panel, hosted by Portland State University, brings together immigrant advocates, city officials and scholars to better understand what it means to be a sanctuary city and to reflect on our values and ideals. It will take place form 6 p.m. to 7:45 p.m. Feb. 28 in the U.S. Bank Room at Central Library. For more information, visit https://multcolib.org/events/sanctuary-city-what-does-it-mean-portland/85317.
